Morocco announces new arrests in Nordic touristsí killings

This is absolutely despicable.

In addition to beheading these tourists, the killers also made videos of it and sent the videos to their relatives.

Horrid.

Awful.

Vile.

Here's a link to the wikipedia article:

And here's a Washington Post article:

Morocco announces new arrests in Nordic touristsí killings

December 26, 2018

RABAT, Morocco ó Moroccan authorities say a total of 19 people have been arrested in connection with the murders of two Nordic tourists in the Atlas Mountains.

Boubker Sabik, a spokesman for Moroccoís national security agency, says 10 new suspects were arrested over the last two days for their links with the alleged killers of 24-year-old Louisa Vesterager Jespersen from Denmark, and 28-year-old Maren Ueland from Norway.

Their bodies were found last week in their camping tent in a remote area in the Atlas Mountains. Authorities believe the hikers were killed by men affiliated with the Islamic State group.

Sabik told national television 2M on Sunday that the suspects targeted the two girls randomly and that IS didnít coordinate the killings.

I'll admit that I haven't read every article on this story, but who said he did?

This forum is for politics, religion, and world events. I think this article covers all three.
